it's another "up" day for wall street. stocks closed sharply higher for a second day as evidence mounts that the housing market is making a comeback. the dow jumped 175 points to close at 14- thousand- 75, its highest close of the year. it's up nearly 300 points over the past two days, putting it within 100 points of its record high reached the nasdaq rose nearly 33 points to close at 3- thousand-162. and the s&p gained 19 points to close at one-thousand- 515. once again. identity theft tops the annual list of consumer complaints to the federal trade commission. karin caifa has the full list, and tips to avoid becoming a victim of any of the top scams. the federal trade commission received more than 2 million consumer complaints in 20- 12. about half of them were related to some type of fraud and those complaints cost americans more than one-point-four-billion dollars.
8:43 pm
the most common complaint to the f-t-c - identity theft - which accounted for about one in every five complaints. next, debt collection, followed by complaints regarding banks and lenders, shop-at-home and catalog sales, and rounding out the top five, prizes, sweepstakes and lotteries. when it comes to identity theft, remember scammers aren't above digging through dumpsters for personal information, so shred sensitive documents, especially now, during tax season. and to avoid falling prey to most other scams that involve fraud, heed the oft-repeated warning to never reply to emails, phone calls, or text messages that ask for personal or financial information. these often come disguised as an account alert - so if you're really worried, follow up with a credit or debit card company yourself. and research any company before doing business with them a quick online search for the company name plus a search term like "scam," "complaint," or "fraud," can save trouble later on. karen caifa kron 4
